1647 · London
From 1641 to 1647, Lord Ormonde commanded the Royal Irish Army against the Irish Catholic Confederation. In 1647 he knew he could no longer hold Dublin against the insurgents and so appealed to the English Long Parliament, signing a treaty delivering Dublin into the hands of the Parliamentarians — but a treaty that protected the interests of both royalist Protestants and Roman Catholics who had not participated in the rebellion. This is that treaty.
